To celebrate the recent 50th anniversary of the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction and to go along with the release of the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, Johnny Depp made a live and in-person appearance as Jack Sparrow at Disneyland Park recently, much to the shock of guests enjoying the ride.
Disney has released a video of Depp’s surprise appearance, and if you haven’t already seen it you can check it out below.
Do you remember watching the Disney Cruise Line commercials that aired in 1998, encouraging you to “discover uncharted magic” and set sail on the Disney Magic? Sixteen years have passed, and with four ships in its fleet, Disney Cruise Line is as bustling as ever with many dozens of voyages around the world each year.
I recently returned from a most excellent, elegant, and exciting voyage on the Disney Fantasy, the newest of the vessels. I continue to praise everything about what the ship has to offer, both tangibly and emotionally, but to describe an experience does not mean as much as actually living it.
I hope to encourage you to realize the possibilities of Disney Cruise Line, albeit through experiencing it vicariously, as I share memories of my time aboard the Disney Fantasy. My story is just one of many that individuals experienced on the same ship during the same week. Each varies in level of relaxation and fun, but almost all contain the same core elements that define Disney Cruise Line: magic, in every sense of the word.
The Wrap is reporting that superstar Johnny Depp is close to signing a deal that would see him returning to the role of Jack Sparrow for the currently untitled Pirates of the Caribbean 5.
The news comes just as the fourth film in the franchise, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, passed $1 billion worldwide in box office revenue, making it even less shocking than it was before the milestone was passes. The $250 million blockbuster only brought in $234 million domestically, but soared to just under $775 million overseas.
